GO Group head to Vienna

gglogo2Greener, smarter, more sustainable – the GO Group motto is spreading all across the European events industry and the GP Group are finding more and more followers of the green events philosophy. Festivals from all over the continent have taken the lead on this journey and spearhead the movement, but still there’s a long way to go.

The last and very successful international GO Group workshop in Paris showed there is need for this interactive, open and communicative format we set up to stimulate exchange, cooperation and inspiration – between event organizers, suppliers and science.
 
Now it’s time for the
 5th international GO Group workshop in Vienna. 

GO kindly invite you to this 2-day seminar at the Umweltbundesamt (Federal Environmental Agency), on April 7 and 8 2014. The workshop is kindly hosted by Beatpatrol Festival and Jump (Jugend-Umwelt-Plattform)Please register at the Bucks University online store . There’s a special offer for Yourope members. Please notice that the workshop capacity is limited!

This GO Group workshop for Sustainable Festivals and Events will focus on “challenges & solutions“ (day 1) and “communication & audience involvement“ (day 2). Presentations, discussion and case studies from experts and major European festivals will show new perspectives and will be combined with group work and discussions on both days.
